Was wondering if anyone could help me?

I am running my resolution at 1280x1024 and its currently set to 75hz, now i would like to run it at 100hz but i dont fully understand what i need to do to XF86Config-4 to set this and if possible where it should be, I have googled but everyone runs around 1024x768 @ 85hz !

I just dont follow it very well and also katonix has really put a lot of crap in my config file too, its so primitive its not like any config file i have seen before, i would really like to trim it down but aint really sure if its necessary?

here is my config file below,

I think you can do that by changing VertRefresh to 100
... and you're sure it won't fry your monitor?

glx? Possibly, don't remember. I'll check at home where I'm using Nvidia 3D. Will be back tomorrow.

You have entries for various kinds of input devices like ps/2-mouse, usb-mouse...
You can remove all 'Section "InputDevice" you don't use. I don't know about all those "modelines"? Maybe you can try removing, keep a backup just in case!
